Armed men wearing bandannas to obscure their faces broke into a West Durham home Friday and took away numerous items, according to police.
The home invasion took place shortly after midnight at a home in the area of American and Constitution drives, near Duke Forest, said police spokeswoman Kammie Michael. No injuries were reported.
Two adults told police that two or three men made their way inside their home and robbed them at gunpoint of television sets, laptop computers, jewelry, an Xbox and phones, Michael reported.
The bandits tied up the victims before fleeing in a 2005 white Ford Freestyle vehicle with Louisiana plates, Michael said.
Investigators said the vehicle has a large dark stain on the back seat, a Jamestowne Court sticker on the left side of the front window and a religious medallion inside the driver’s side front visor.
The victims told police the men were wearing dark bandanas over their faces. One suspect was wearing a white T-shirt and may have been in his late teens to mid-twenties.
